It’s time for the May ICS Blog Hop! This month’s theme is “It’s A Guy Thing In Black & White.” We are featuring masculine projects using only black and white products. I used the A Good Man stamp set and the Timeless Label Punch, and watercolored with an Aqua Painter and Memento ink refill on Shimmery White cardstock.

Here’s what I did:

Cut and scored with my paper trimmer:

  • Basic Black card stock (CS) cut to 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″, then scored in half at 4-1/4″
  • Shimmery White CS layer cut to 3-3/8″ x 3-1/2″
  • Shimmery White CS layer cut to 3″ x 3″
  • Shimmery White CS layer cut to 2-1/2″ x 4″
  • Shimmery White CS cut to 5-1/4″ x 4″ for the inside of the card base
  • any scrap paper cut to 4-1/4″ x 3″

Stamped with the A Good Man stamp set:

  • image in Tuxedo Black Memento ink onto the 2-1/2″ x 4″
  • sentiment in Tuxedo Black Memento ink onto a scrap of Shimmery White CS

Cut using the Timeless Label Punch:

  • sentiment

Colored using an Aqua Painter and Tuxedo Black Memento ink:

  • stripes onto the 3-3/8″ x 3-1/2″ piece of Shimmery White CS
  • splotches onto the 3″ x 3″ piece of Shimmery White CS
  • stamped image
  • edges of the punched sentiment
  • 4-1/4″ x 3″ scrap paper laid on the 5-1/4″ x 4″ Shimmery White CS, then used the Aqua Painter to splatter all around the edges
  • removed scrap paper and painted a frame on the inner edge of the splattered area
  • Note: I used a large clear block as a palette for the Memento ink refill. 

Colored using a Stampin’ Blends Marker:

  • 3 small frosted epoxy droplets in Dark Basic Black

Assembled the card:

  • burnished the fold in the card base with a Bone Folder
  • striped layer glued onto the front of the card base
  • splotchy layer glued onto the front of the card base, over the striped layer
  • image layer adhered over the first two layers using Stampin’ Dimensionals
  • sentiment glued to the image layer on the left and adhered onto the splotchy layer with Stampin’ Dimensionals on the right
  • 3 droplets applied onto the layers
  • 5-1/4″ x 4″ piece of Shimmery White CS glued onto the inside of the card base
